I had a call from my sons teacher friday. She said that he had been so disruptive that day that she had annointed his desk with oil. No, this is not a christian school. I dont know what the purpose of annointing is. To ward evil or bless or what ? Can anyone tell me and do you think this was appropiate ?
Uh, that is so inappropriate on so many levels. What if YOU were not of the Christian faith? Can you imagine what damage she would have done to a child that did not hold her same beliefs? I have worked with many teachers and sometimes you have to step up and let them AND the principal know when something disturbing happens. It is doing her no favors NOR any of the other students to keep this under wraps. She was completely wrong.

Not sure what it is for, I would tell her you appreciate her gesture (?) but you would appreciate it if she did not annoint your son or his belongings with anything.

Anointing is used Biblically as a blessing (healing, protection, etc.), but some people misuse the practice as a means of "warding off evil." Either way it was totally inappropriate since the teacher did not have your permission to do so.
